For those who feel the PhonePad 3 is too small and the DroiPad 8D is rather too big, the one sitting in-between has gotten an upgrade and that’s the new Tecno DroiPad 7D. The newly released tablet comes at a size that’s big enough to let you see your favorite movies clearly and yet, small enough to hold against your ear for a call (if you want to).
Tecno DroiPad 7D is a budget tablet aimed at those who want a big screen without spending much. Compared with the DroiPad 7c, it offers some improvements in terms of design and technical specifications.
We unboxed Tecno DroiPad 7D already and even though it doesn’t have that wow factor, it still leaves a good first impression for a budget tablet in its price range. Before going for the unboxing, here’s a quick look at the technical specifications:
- Display: 7-inch IPS LCD (600×1024 px)
- Camera: 5MP front camera with flash, 8MP back camera with flash
- Operating System: Android 7.0 Nougat
- Storage: 16 GB ROM (expandable storage up to 256GB)
- RAM: 1GB RAM
- Battery Capacity: 3,000 mAh
- SIM: Dual SIM Card
- Network: 2G / 3G
Apart from the device, these are the other items found in the box:
- 1 charger head
- 1 USB cable
- 1 transparent cover
There are no earphones included.
The front of the device doesn’t hold much, it looks generic and there’s no branding seen. At the top of the screen is the 5MP aided by a single LED flash for low-light selfies.
The 7-inch screen has a resolution of 1024×600 px, the same resolution on it’s predecessor. Even though it’s not as crisp as the display you would see on a high-end tablet, we should be reminded that this is a budget device.
The navigations keys are placed on-screen.
At the top of the phone are the earphone jack and USB cable. On the right side are the volume rocker and power button.
The back of the phone is a contrast to the rather plain front. There’s a beautiful Kevlar pattern on the (non-removable) back cover.
At the top-left corner is the 8MP camera with an LED flash just beside it.
You can pop-off this top part of the back cover to reveal the two SIM slots and microSD slot.
This is in no way a full review of this device. That should be published when we’ve fully taken it for a spin. The device should be available soon on Jumia for about #35,000.
